what we must ALL insist on, is a very special ride report from Groenie, from when he left home, till he got back...
i cant wait to hear his comments on the bash  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:


I second that!!......as well as a detailed report on how to repair the sump of an Opel Corsa.....this of course will not go under technical tips  but will be a lot more appropriate under Jou Ma :twisted:


CO, you make we want to go back to do it all over again this weekend :lol:


PLEASE NO :shock:  His speed was100 km/ph :shock:  This forum would be long gone by the time that ride report ends

Sure looks like a whole lotta fun packed into a weekend with the right type of people, well done and hope this is just the start of many more events like these 8)  :)

Good one there Watty, we were looking for some lost washers in the grass. Groenie had ducked at this stage, he thought he had removed three sumps. :lol:  :lol: He had to have a quick 'sleep'. :lol:  :lol:
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

OK folks, I suspect we can expect a Baviaans overload tomorrow when most of the other hooligans will be back at the office. Although if they are even slightly as tired as I am today (Groenie's fault) I will understand if they drag their heels a little.

Michnus,

did you also do the 4x4 route on Saturday?

Post a few pics of your ride.

We left camp at about 09h30 and got to the Assegaaibos Hotel at 14h00. After a few beers and nice burger we arrived back as base at about 20h00.

Awesome ride that 4x4 trail. :D  :D

Why do you hide this report here and not under "Ride Reports"?

Seems like lots of fun was had by all  :D

Sorry I missed, maybe next year  :wink:

Great story developing here.  Thanks to all of you for the reports, looks like you all had a great time!  :)   I would really have liked to be there, Baviaans is still on the "to-do" list.  8)   Keep posting - maybe consider moving to Ride Reports section.  :shock:  How about some track logs - did you get to do any riding off the "main" road through Bav??  :?:

You went the Uniondale way back to the camp? It was a very enjoyable route.

All I can say is: ^&$%&*$!!!!!!!!!!!
This was probably the best weekend I've had in my entire life.
Me and Marli got home last night at 6pm, and while unpacking the AT, I got upset that I'm home. I wanted to re-pack the bike and just keep on riding.
Thanks BoJ for everything you did, you are a legend. :P
Thanks Briv for the spit, and the company through the kloof and back home. 8)  :D
To Watermat: On Saturday evening, when you got back to camp, I've never seen a grown man smile so much. You must have had a heck of a time! :D
And to everyone there: you are a lekker bunch of people, lets do it again!

We left the Kloof on Sunday, rode to Uniondale, from there to Avontuur, and over the most awesome, beautiful, jawdropping mountain passes to Kynsna. All gravel, and took us about 3hours for 80 km.
Slept in Wildernis, and yesterday rode to Stilbaai, Jongensfontein, Vermaaklikheid, Greyton, and home.
Will post a few of my pics shortly.

And thanks to the guy from SW Motech for my lekker tailpack!!!!!

As everybody has said, If you were not there, sorry om jou troubles te hoor!!!! :D Coolest bunch of people  8)
Anda and I had an extremely interesting journey back that involved Rene the Canadian chap who joined us through the Prince Alfreds pass to Knysna. We also encountered Kaboef and Marlie on this stretch.

We wanted to stay in Vleesbaai, Sunday, but low and behold we ended up in..... wait for it BOGGOMSBAAI :shock: from Baviaans kloof to Boggomsbaai  :D  :D
Could not ask for a better long weekend.

Thanks to all involved.

Gideon, jy is die Nar!!!
Our pics will follow soon.
Hey Kaboef did you see our stof streep on the Vermaaklikheid road and did you check Puntjie ?
1557 km, 107 liters, 14.5 k's/lit what the hell its a ledgend :P  :lol:

No, I was too busy dodging potholes to check for stofstrepe. :lol:
We did not visit Puntjie. We went for lunch in Greyton instead (after dodging MORE potholes.) :shock:  :?
